Hi. I'm Steve. I have found my passion in photographing weddings. After shooting my first wedding (which was a last minute, three day notice, emergency for a co-worker) I realized this is what I want to do with my life. Maybe I'm a romantic, I'm not sure, but here I am.
I have a background in engineering and theatrical lighting. In fact there is where my interest in photography began. I photographed the shows I designed lights for in a local theater since the professional photographer insisted on using a flash. I wanted to capture my light. The actors liked my photos better so I figured I should look into this. I took classes at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan and practiced every chance I could.
Since then, I have shot over 75 weddings. I've also had my fine art photography in several local galleries and have been published in magazines and newspapers. It is still not a full time business but I'm lucky enough to work as a corporate videographer for a large financial institution, which I also love. And because of that experience, I am now offering videography services for weddings as well.
I work with several other photographers in the area. I felt it was important to do my best to create a large network of wedding professionals so I have plenty of photographers to bring in as second shooters or back-ups.
I am truly blessed to be doing what I feel I was meant to do. I am not great at talking about myself but I do feel it's important that you get to know your photographer. They are the only vendor that is with you from the beginning of your day to the end. If you decide to have me do your wedding, I want to make you feel like you've hired a friend, so please feel free to ask me anything you would like to know.
